Tasting Notes:

This Method Cap Classique is made from Chardonnay grapes only – from a single vineyard that is almost 3 decades old. Having waited 3 years in the bottle prior to release, hints of almond, apple tart, pears and honey on the nose are complimented by a fine mousse and a structured, savoury palette that leads to a satisfyingly salty finish.

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” Wendell Berry

There’s no denying that Constantia Uitsig has a long and rich heritage behind it. But it’s the prospect of what lies ahead that burns brightest in our hearts – not simply in the years to come, but in the generations to come too.

Our Chardonnay blocks were planted in 1990. The soil is course sand of the Clovelly formation.

Whole bunches of grapes are gently pressed to ensure low phenols and the cleanest juice possible. Fermentation is then done in 10% old oak barrels and in 90% stainless steel barrels. Malolactic fermentation is also carried out.

The base wine is bottled with sugar and yeast to start the secondary bottle fermentation after which the wine spends 36 months on the lees.
